This software development kit (SDK) section of Microsoft Host Integration Server 2006 Help provides information for the programmer writing applications for Host Integration Server 2006.
Using Help in a Developer Environment
Host Integration Server Help contains features that you can use to display the developer documentation in your preferred language and to link between Host Integration Server Help and Visual Studio Help.
Using Language Filtering
The Host Integration Server .NET Framework Class Reference and COM Object Reference provide signatures and code examples in multiple programming languages.
You can customize your view of the content in the reference pages to display information only in your preferred programming language. To select a custom language, use the Language Filter button in the upper-left corner of the reference page. After it is enabled, the language filtering is persisted until it is changed. When language filtering is enabled on a page, the name of the language follows the title in the blue bar at the top of the page.
Viewing Host Integration Server Help in Visual Studio
You can view Host Integration Server Help in three ways:
In Visual Studio, select Contents on the Help menu.
In the Visual Studio Help, select Microsoft Visual Studio from the Programs menu.
In the stand-alone Microsoft Host Integration Server Help, select Host Integration Server Documentation from the Programs, Microsoft Host Integration Server menu.
If you are developing in Visual Studio, either of the first two methods are recommended. Using either of these methods enables integration between Host Integration Server Help and Visual Studio Help; this integration is extremely useful when navigating class relationships across the documentation sets. If you view Host Integration Server Help outside of Visual Studio, read the following tip to properly render links to Visual Studio.
Linking between Host Integration Server Help and Microsoft Visual Studio Help
When a member is inherited from the .NET Framework Base Class Library, two links are provided, as shown in the following example:
Finalize (inherited from System.Object)
For additional information about the System namespace, see .NET Framework Help available from Visual Studio or go to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=9677.
If you are viewing Host Integration Server Help in Visual Studio or in the Visual Studio Help, the link in the left column goes to the exact member page. If you are viewing Host Integration Server Help outside of Visual Studio, use the link in the right column to go to the System namespace page in MSDN Library. Note that the link will not go to the specific member page.
